Submit suggestions and vote before trail opens on July 12
Thanks to a regional collaborative effort between the Tahoe Area Mountain Biking Association (TAMBA), the Truckee Tahoe Airport, the U.S. Forest Service, the Tahoe Fund and the North Tahoe Public Utility District (NTPUD), a new multi-use trail with mountain bike features is being built for public use in Kings Beach. The trail and parking improvements will be accessible from the Forest Service access road off of Beaver Street.
Not only will this new multi-use trail offer a fun way to experience the national forest lands in Kings Beach, it will help reduce erosion and keep sediment from flowing into the nearby Griff Creek.
“This is an excellent example of partnership and community engagement on a project that will truly make a difference for both the land and trail users,” said US Forest Service trails engineer, Jacob Quinn. “We’re excited to build on the already significant public engagement in this project with the trail naming campaign. These trails and the surrounding public land are an important part of the community and we want to honor that relationship by reaching out and working together in naming this amazing new trail.”
The group building the trail is seeking name ideas from the community. Trail name submissions can be submitted online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KingsBeachTrail. There is no limit on entries.
Submissions will be accepted until 5 p.m. on June 27, 2019. The organizations building the trail, the U.S. Forest Service, TAMBA, Tahoe Fund and the NTPUD, will narrow the entries down to three options. The community will be able to vote for the new trail name between July 1-8, 2019. The winner will be announced on Friday, July 12 at the new trail’s ribbon cutting and grand opening.
